One more suggestion:
d) In the "Declaration" section of each element definition, there's an
HTML button that says "Compact to XML format". If you click on it, the
button label changes to say "XML format to compact". These labels are
confusing, so I'd like to suggest changing as follows:
"Compact to XML format" --> "Switch to XML format"
XML format to compact" --> "Switch to compact format"
